How Much Does An Average Karaoke Machine Cost?

All-In-One Mics

All-in-one microphones are basically the least expensive choice. Consisting of a mic, speaker and mixer you can easily connect via Bluetooth or aux cable to your personal devices.

To use the all-in-one mic you will need a screen to display lyrics as you perform. You can access karaoke Apps or YouTube to select your favorite tracks. You can then view the lyrics on your device screen. Your voice and backing track can then be heard through the microphone speaker. 

Wherever or whenever you feel like bursting into song, a wireless all-in-one mic is the perfect choice. Small, portable and cheap as chips, this mic is perfect to take on the go.

Keep in mind that an all-in-one microphone only allows one person to sing at a time. If you enjoy getting together for group performances with your buddies, then a karaoke machine with dual mics built-in or with the option to add additional mics would be a better choice. 

The wireless all-in-one microphone speaker is small, therefore the sound it produces may not be as loud as you would like. If you are considering purchasing it for the younger members of the family then the sound it produces would be more than adequate!!
